My friend and I chanced to talk about driverless-cars.
Here are some expressions he used,
and I think they need to be polished a bit.
Could you please take a look at them?

1. It has been reporting self-driving car is just around the corner by some experts.

Well, first of all, I'm pretty sure 'reporting' needs to be 'reported'.

As 'car' is a noun, it either needs an article 'a' or be in the plural form. I'd take the plural form.

Here's my version of rewriting it.
- It has been reported that self-driving cars are just around the corner by some experts.

Does it sound better?


2. It's way too much risky to drive those cars.

I've heard the pattern a lot 'way too adjective',
like, 'It's way too expensive.' or 'That's way too risky'

What about 'way too much risky' then?
Is it also considered natural to add 'much' between 'too' and an adjective?

I entered on google 'way too dangerous' and 'way too much dangerous'.
The number of results I got are, respectively, 315,000 and 8,200.

Would it be safe to conclude that native speakers don't use the phrase 'way too much adjective'?

It's obvious that Google helps me a great deal in studying English,
but it's hard to get any conviction until I get answers from here.

Thank you all.

Yes, just "way too" is ok, so "way too risky" in this case.
